Cricket scales new heights at Everest

TWO British cricket teams played a match at the foot of Mount Everest on Tuesday in an attempt to set a high-altitude record for field sports.

The teams played a Twenty-20 match at Gorakshep, located 5,165 meters above sea level on the southern side of the world's highest mountain in Nepal. Team Hillary defeated team Tenzing in the match, organizers of the match said yesterday. The group of 50 people trekked for nine days to reach the site where the match was held. It is the last village before reaching the Everest base camp, the starting point for dozens of mountaineers who attempt to climb Everest every year.
